DPS: Dry Paving System
The Dry Paving System (DPS) is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System that offers an excellent solution for efficient rainwater management. DPS integrates a permeable pavement and an underground structure formed by polymeric geocells with a high capacity of infiltration and retention of rainwater under its surface.
The ecoDraining® concrete slabs, whose composition and porosity guarantee water permeability -both by mass and by joint- forms the upper layer of the system. Their side spacers guarantee the formation of uniform joints through which water can be evacuated.
The Hidrocell polymeric geocell framework supports the ecoDraining pavement. They are set by a framework of crosses and slots specially designed to assure their adjustment. Between the ecoDraining pieces and the Hidrocell geocells, a thin layer of geotextile facilitates the infiltration of water and prevents the passage of particles, allowing a perfect anchorage between the geocells and the concrete paving.
